<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Lady Catherine Herries to Mary Hamilton, relating to Herries's health and to Hamilton's family.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries has been wishing to write to Hamilton ever since she received her 'affectionate' letter. Herries writes on her health and notes that she is not 'satisfied' with the 'account' that Hamilton had written of herself and with the letter that she had written to Mrs Elizabeth Carter. Hamilton had been very ill and therefore it gives her comfort when Hamilton writes that she is 'much better'. Herries informs Hamilton that she has 'taken a particular preparation of Bark' for a stomach complaint, which her physician 'has great faith in'. Herries had just undertaken an expensive trip and therefore, as Hamilton is probably not coming to London, it is doubtful that she will be able to see her any time soon.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Herries continues her letter on the subject of Hamilton's family, a publication on the subject of religion [<i>The Estimate of Religion on the Fashionable World</i> by Hannah More (1791)], on mutual friends including Horace Walpole.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's Street, [London].</p>
